We love the idea of a Mothering Sunday walk here!
Lackford Lakes lie beside the River Lark. Packed full of bird hides, places to sit and enjoy views, an active visitor centre selling drinks and snacks plus a comprehensive programme of activities for children and adults, it makes a great and inexpensive place to visit.
A superb site for wildfowl year round, Lackford attracts tufted duck, teal, pochard, gadwall, shoveler and goosander. There is a large winter gull roost and one or two pairs of redshank nest here.
Passing birds of prey include the majestic osprey, whilst buzzard and sparrowhawk can be seen regularly. In the summer months, hobby can be seen in hot pursuit of sand martin, swallows and an array of dragonflies. One of the best places in Suffolk for kingfisher, and cormorant are often seen fishing at the sailing lake or roosting in the tall trees by the river
